Suspension Service & Repair for 1988 Alfa Romeo Spider

Is It Time For 1988 Alfa Romeo Spider Suspension Service?

When you first drove your 1988 Alfa Romeo Spider, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Maybe your Spider jolts, drifts to one side, or makes noise whenever you turn or drive over a speed bump. The first sign of trouble is the best time to bring your 1988 Alfa Romeo Spider in for suspension and steering service. We'll pinpoint the problem.

The technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will start with a suspension inspection to diagnose your vehicle. We will examine the front and rear end suspension, shocks, damper springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis parts, axle bearings, and the power steering system. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if your Spider suspension system needs repair, we’ll explain what your car needs and how much it’ll cost to get it done. We won't begin any work without your permission. If parts of your Alfa Romeo Spider suspension or steering system need to be replaced because they're worn or damaged, we may also recommend a wheel alignment since replacing steering and suspension parts can change existing wheel angles and ride height.

Shock & Strut Replacements for Your Alfa Romeo Spider

Your 1988 Alfa Romeo Spider’s suspension system relies on its shocks and struts to function properly. They help you stay in control as your car handles bumpy roads and uneven terrain. Struts support the structure of the suspension and shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. These components work together to limit vibration and keep your Alfa Romeo up off the ground. But there's no set schedule for 1988 Alfa Romeo Spider shock and strut replacement since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. Bouncing, swaying, or rocking back and forth can all point to issues with your Alfa Romeo Spider shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 1988 Alfa Romeo Spider suspension shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride. Schedule an appointment for steering and suspension services at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

1988 Spider Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my Spider's steering and suspension? Maintaining your tires can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also alert you to the need for new tires. Uneven tire wear is one sign of steering and suspension system problems, but it can also contribute to more.
  • Why should my Alfa Romeo Spider get regular tire rotations and wheel alignments? Regularly rotate tires and adjust wheel alignment. Rotations and alignments involve minor tweaks that have a major impact. Both services help ensure that the correct amount of pressure is applied to each tire and that the tires come into contact with the road in the way Alfa Romeo intended.
  • When does Alfa Romeo Spider power steering fluid need to be inspected or changed? Have your power steering fluid checked when you get an oil change or every few months. If your power steering fluid needs to be filled, we’ll top it off per Alfa Romeo's guidelines to help ensure proper suspension operation.
